SURPRISE!! Yes, it’s true. It’s really happening. We are going back one last time final time to Catalonia. This chilly week we drink the one that almost got away: DO Penedés; a región most famous for its sparkling Cava wines. But Roque and Luke sample instead a fascinating bottle of white Nosodos+ from Albet i Noya. They chat bottle sizes and introduce a new segment to the show!
Time to say goodbye to our beloved Catalonia with the little known DO Pla de Bages. We have tried Abadal Franc, an unexpected red wine that has not left us indifferent. See for yourself, but watch out! Roque and Luke say more nonsense than ever.
This week something completely unexpected for Roque and Luke. They head to the flat humid lands in the deep southeast of the country with a bottle from DO Condado de Huelva. They share a bottle of Letrado from Bodegas Iglesias and discuss this new region, new wine style and new grape. They also shares ideas for imaginary wine gadgets and how to pair with fortified wines.
This week Roque and Luke head back to the realm of the Vinos de Pago, but this time to a small microclimate tucked away in the south of Navarra: Pago de Cirsus, DO Pago Finca Bolandín. They chat food pairings for Thanksgiving and blather on about glasses. Expect the usual levels of geekery and stupidity.
This week, as Madrid descends into winter, Roque and Luke head northwest back to Galicia to pick up their last DO there: DO Ribeiro. A positively sexy bottle of Pazo Tizón Extramundi white wine. Amid nonsense, the pair chat pairings with grilled food and why the Spaniards seems to drink more beer than vino!
